Impostor (2002)

What is it?

The 2002 American science fiction movie Impostor that was based on the short story Impostor by Philip K. Dick.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

The year is 2079.

The earth has been at war with an alien force for over a decade.

Spencer Olham is a lauded government scientist whose latest work promises to save the planet.

But suddenly he is accused of being an alien spy, and becomes the subject of a nationwide manhunt.

Olham is faced with a two-tiered dilemma- can he prove his identity to the secret police in time to help mankind?

Can he ultimately prove his identity to himself?

What do I like about it and what might other people like about it?

I probably liked that this movie was better than I had expected and I liked the surprise twist at the end, and I think that other people might like that as well.

Final Thoughts

I had completely forgotten about this movie until my brother GC started mentioning a movie that we had seen years ago that he could not remember the name of, we had just finished watching the episode Kill All Others from the television show Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, and that episode reminded him of this movie in some ways.

We figured out the name of the movie and I looked it up, and barely a few pieces of my memory of it came back to my mind.

We both (maybe one or more of my other brothers saw it as well) saw this movie once years ago when it was probably on television, we probably were flipping through channels when it was coming on and so we started watching it, and I think that the movie was better than we had expected and it kept our attention and it ended with a surprise twist.

The end,
